One Thousand Sleepless Tales

CONTENT WARNING:

Heavy Themes, including depression, suicide, and violence against children

A young mage named Reyen ventures out into the world for the first time. Cursed to never sleep again—and upon learning that something sinister is eating other people's dreams—she vows to help them by entering their dream-lands. Waking them up means helping them break their fantasies and seek acceptance within themselves. Reyen learns what it means to live and have desires from their stories. Reyen's story, however, is not without turmoil; every dream she ventures into causes immense stress to her physical body.

This is a demo! Full game is still in development!


One Thousand Sleepless Tales is an RPG Maker horror game inspired by classic games like The Witch's House, Mad Father and Ib. This game is still a work in progress; all themes are not fleshed out, and all warnings are not yet discovered. More warning labels will be added as the team continues to improve the game. Remember that this is a demo, so please excuse any bugs or typos you may encounter.

Thank you for playing!

Amazing game and can't wait for more. 

Thank you so much! We should have a slightly longer version of it with an added chapter or two coming at the end of October!

Good game

Thank you for playing it!

My pleasure

Really interesting demo, this game is definitely weird in a good way, the premise although not completely defined, is interesting, the mechanics are there, there is definitely a surprise waiting in some corners and even tho the story goes everywhere is easy to follow and has some deep moments (except for the end that is gonna haunt my free thinking time for weeks).

Aside from the obvious short comings the game has because, well, it's a demo and it's obviously not finished, the only problem with this game is that is too short! I will be waiting for the full version.


Keep the good work!

Thank you so much for checking out the game! We are currently working on the full release! It's quite a decent size project, but we are hoping to have more around Halloween. 

Also, your video was highly entertaining! 


Thank you again!
